Down with Ah-Bian!



Sometimes when you've had it to here, and just can take no more, there's no choice but to make yourself heard. And that's exactly what 200,000 Taiwanese (or 90,000 depending on who's reporting) had in mind about their corrupt and unrepenting president Chen Shui Bian, when they took to a peaceful protest sit-down at the Kategelan boulevard in Taipei.



Amidst the unrelenting rain and humidity of summer, we joined the teeming crowds adorned in raincoats and huddled under umbrellas to shout our hearts our in the pouring rain. Haven't felt this moved by the sheer strength of people power since the stray bullet fiasco back in 2004.

the difference between Chen Shui-Bian and Thaksin is probably that Chen hasn't slashed enough cash away to become an exile in ac swanky place like London...and none of Taiwan's pathetic island diplomatic allies seem an attractive proposition either...
